Us it allowed to use power tools (dremel, angle grinder…) during the competition (between two matches)
my team has done it, usually we go outside to do that. Check with the EP for final clarification
If the competition is held in a gym that has wooden floors, the school tends not to like it if you use power tools over that floor.
There are no rules saying that you can not, however the EP will have final say of what you can do in the venue.
We usually ask people to do it outside. Pit areas are usually close quarters and it is just common sense to do it away from others.
I am pretty sure that the EP allows it because i have seen other teams use power tools but still I will ask. I just wanted to know if there is a rule about it or not, thanks
Your question was answered (EP’s policy, not a rule), but since you asked about the rules, here’s the link to the game manual: https://content.vexrobotics.com/docs/vrc-tower-takeover/GameManual-20190816.pdf You’ll find ALL the rules in the game manual (with the Official Q&A on robotevents clarifying some of the rules).
